If only

If only I had the time, the
Patience,

Less ambition, if
Only I knew right from wrong, I

Would change the world, paint it

Pink, I would
Love freely, if

Only I could.

Even in money

Today my praise for God knows no bounds. It feels like gratitude so overwhelming that I cannot breath.

It feels like those many moments – but so few in Life – that a mother looks at her child.

It feels like lovers everywhere, caught in that moment of time, when that glance….that indescribable glance…means everything will be ok.

It feels like the moment you get out of debt, only to realise that you should never have been in debt in the first place.

Jesus delivered one of the densest parables in Luke 16: 1-14

It’s interpretation continues to confound and interrupt human notions of Justice and the Afterlife, and of the ‘goodness’ or ‘badness’ of money.

I offer only one of those here that I found;

“…Jesus invites us to realize that, first, our money isn’t really ours — we’re simply managing it for its real owner, God. Second, even “filthy lucre” can be pressed into the service of God and our neighbor. When it is, the benefits will last beyond this life — which the things we buy for ourselves won’t...”

Forgive debt, and try, as much as possible, to be free of debt. If you find yourself in debt, remember, you are in debt. You cannot kill the one you have borrowed from. However remember also, to the extent that you live your life in the surety of life after death, that you add to faithfulness, goodness;

To goodness, knowledge;

To knowledge, self-control;

To self-control, perseverance;

To perseverance, godliness;

To godliness; brotherly (sisterly) kindness, and;

To this kindness, love –

Then;

The fruit of the spirit is;

Love;

Joy;

Peace;

Patience;

Kindness;

Goodness;

Faithfulness;

Gentleness, and;

Self-control…-

beyond you’re debt, untouchable.

God also speaks to the manager.

And gets ‘filthy money’.

“Shackles (Praise You)”

Whoo!
It sure is hot out here
Ya know?
I don’t mind thought
Just glad to be free
Know what I’m saying, uh!

Take the shackles off my feet so I can dance
I just wanna praise you
(What’cha wanna do?)
I just wanna praise you
(Yeah, yeah)
You broke the chains now I can lift my hands
(Uh feel me?)
And I’m gonna praise you
(What’cha gon do?)
I’m gonna praise you

In the corners of mind
I just can’t seem to find a reason to believe
That I can break free
Cause you see I have been down for so long
Feel like the hope is gone
But as I lift my hands, I understand
That I should praise you through my circumstance

Take the shackles off my feet so I can dance
I just wanna praise you
I just wanna praise you
You broke the chains now I can lift my hands
And I’m gonna praise you
I’m gonna praise you

Everything that could go wrong
All went wrong at one time
So much pressure fell on me
I thought I was gon lose my mind
But I know you wanna see
If I will hold on through these trials
But I need you to lift this load
Cause I can’t take it anymore

Take the shackles off my feet so I can dance
I just wanna praise you
I just wanna praise you
You broke the chains now I can lift my hands
And I’m gonna praise you
I’m gonna praise you

Been through the fire and the rain
Bound in every kind of way
But God has broken every chain
So let me go right now

Take the shackles off my feet so I can dance
I just wanna praise you
I just wanna praise you
You broke the chains now I can lift my hands
And I’m gonna praise you
I’m gonna praise you
[repeat x3]

Take them off
What’cha gonna do, yeah

Take the shackles off my feet so I can dance
I just wanna praise you
I just wanna praise you
You broke the chains now I can lift my hands
And I’m gonna praise you
I’m gonna praise you

“…and For This Reason…”

 

Add to faith, goodness;
To goodness, knowledge;
To knowledge, self-control;
To self-control, perseverance;
To perseverance, clean intention;
To this intention, brotherly-kindness, and
To brotherly-kindness, love.

No-one understands me.
No-one appreciates me.
You never listen.

You never say, “I love you.”

Yet in the cool spaces between impressing others and,
Being pleasant to God, how

Are you?
How am I? And,

Then I know,

How wonderful it is,
To ache to be pleasing to God.

-2nd Peter 1:5-7-

The Rat Only Comes When You Don’t Have A Stick To Kill It.

Damned if you do damned if you don’t,
Hell for leather,

Hammer and tongs,
Till death do us part,

Give up the ghost,
Make hay,

Make babies,
Make love,

Not war,

Dress up,
Come down,

Every dog has its place in the sun,
Rage against the dying of the light,

Strike whilst the iron is hot,
Count your chickens before they hatch,

Against the dying of the day;

There are bigger fish to fry,
A stitch in time saves nine.

Eggs in one basket,
Scrambled,
Sunny-Side Up,

Bacon,

When you rattle a snake expect a bite –
Enough.

Pierre et Seydou and
Kaka Sungura,

Bi Kidude,

An apple a day keeps the doctor away,
The early bird catches the worm;

A bird in hand is worth two in the bush
Two peas in a pod,

Let sleeping dogs lie,
Tomorrow never comes.

Diamonds are forever,

For by your words you will be acquitted,
And by you words you will be condemned.

 

 

-short evocative poetry-

For by your words you will be acquitted, and by your words you will be condemned.” – Matthew

Sweet wine, the

Great human, is
